Property Details

3 2 1
A bright and spacious semi detached chalet style home with three double sized bedrooms, located in a popular residential area where town and country merge and boasting some delightful views of countryside to the rear and front. We believe that the property dates to the 1950s and still retains the old solid fuel Rayburn that is still used for water heating and a radiator. Our seller has been in residence for the last ten years, during this time the property has been well maintained and improved with replacement kitchen units and new bathroom suite. This lovely home benefits from uPVC double glazing and economy electric heating with the exception of the sitting room radiator, which is run off the Rayburn and also has an open fireplace. This lovely home offers comfortable accommodation with scope to mark it to ones own taste. A viewing is strongly recommended to really appreciate this home and how it would easily lend itself to many potential purchasers requirements.
